Hi. My daughters are studying in a UK curriculum school in Dubai . Elder one has completed year 6 and younger one has completed year 2 . I want them to move to a US curriculum school in Dubai. Which grade will they go to in a US curriculum? Will getting a equivalency certificate help in anyway . Previously few years back I had wanted them to move to a UK curriculum school in Sharjah and I was told to bring an equivalency certificate . Also is there any UK curriculum school offering full year distance learning in Dubai ?
Your daughters will be able to move to a US curriculum school and will join Grade 8 and Grade 4 respectively as the US curriculum is graded from KG1 (FS2 equivalent) to Grade 12 (Year 13 equivalent).
You will need to apply for a transfer certificate from your current school which will be forwarded electronically to the new US curriculum school once you have gained admission.
Schools in Dubai are only planning on-line learning for the first term as there is no decision as to whether online learning will continue for term 2 onwards.
The online organisation that offers full-time on line learning is i-Cademy. You can check the review on WhichSchoolAdvisor.com. This is US curriculum.
